For the first time ever, the BBC will air a special edition of 1Xtra Live Lounge focused on Nigerian artistes this March, 2014.
What makes it special is the show (Live Lounge) was is always filmed in London, for the first time, headed out of the UK as this edition was shot in to Lagos, Nigeria.
The edition of Live Lounge will feature the likes of top Nigerian entertainers Wizkid, 2face Idibia. Others include rappers M.I and Eva Alordiah.
Live Lounge is a feature where an artist performs songs (mostly original, but sometimes covers of other artistes songs) with a live band and backing vocals in a studio setting. This edition is a collaboration between BBC 1Xtra and BBC’s African News and Current Affairs division, designed to improve the BBC’s African content.
Artists who have previously featured on BBC Radio and 1Xtra Live Lounge include Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, Akon, Justin Timberlake, Tinie Tempah, Jessie J, Usher, Adele and many more.
